    • Let the remaining heat at 95°C for about 3-5 minutes to soften the adhesive

    • Use an opening tool to pry at the top, between your digitizer and the middleframe

    • Open it from the top, your digitizer-flex runs at the bottom

    • Be careful when using a heat-gun. Heat-guns don't distribute heat evenly and LCD-burns may occur

    • To remove the LCD, remove the sticker on the back of the midframe. It conseals the LCD-flex

    • Be careful when removing the sticker. It's glued tightly and too much stress will tear the LCD-flex

    • Remove the LCD by pulling the whole cable through the midframe.
